Bible: Jer 36:6-9

36:6 So you go there the next time all the people of Judah come in from their towns to fast 1  in the Lord’s temple. Read out loud where all of them can hear you what I told you the Lord said, which you wrote in the scroll. 2  36:7 Perhaps then they will ask the Lord for mercy and will all stop doing the evil things they have been doing. 3  For the Lord has threatened to bring great anger and wrath against these people.” 4 

36:8 So Baruch son of Neriah did exactly what the prophet Jeremiah had told him to do. He read what the Lord had said from the scroll in the temple of the Lord. 5  36:9 All the people living in Jerusalem 6  and all the people who came into Jerusalem from the towns of Judah came to observe a fast before the Lord. The fast took place in the ninth month of the fifth year that Jehoiakim son of Josiah was ruling over Judah. 7
